Casa San Marcos is an old 18th century Spanish home which was restored in the early 2000's. It features an art gallery, amazing décor and a restaurant. There are only 6 rooms and each one is uniquely designed to be different from the other. It is so quaint that a stay here is not like staying in a Hotel but... More

This boutique hotel is well located in the historic center of Quito. The common areas are beautifully appointed with nice artwork, the food was good and the staff could not have been more helpful or friendly. BUT....considering the $225 price (before 22% taxes), the room was disappointing. While it was relatively large with a separate sitting area, two full beds... More

Casa San Marcos felt like a home in the quaint, historic district of Quito.

Quito is interesting not only for the equator highlights but the town itself has become a safe and interesting place in itself. This hotel was a highlight of the trip with its antiques, art gallery, great breakfast and general ambience. Highly recommend the vegetarian restaurant at the end of the street as well.

Casa San Marcos, a house of treasures Publicado el 10/Noviembre/2011 | 14:51By LANCE BRASHEAR on the Miami HeraldCasa San Marcos - a boutique hotel along what is slowly becoming a cultural corridor in central Quito - was, until recently, a house obscured by time. But the passage of time has a way of not just hiding treasures, but also revealing them when the right person comes along. The name Jose Jaime Ortiz was all but lost as the architect of Casa San Marcos until archives discovered in recent years revealed the hand behind the craftsmanship. Ortiz is now recognized as one of Quito's most formidable architects from the turn of the 18th century and is credited with a dozen structures in Quito including the El Sagrario Church, the reconstruction of La Merced Church, and the tower of Santo Domingo Church. ... more   less
